Just finished The Willing Spirit by Piers Anthony and Alfred Tella.

If you like sexual humor and/or Hindu gods, read it. :3

Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes. It's actually really interesting when you get used to the archaic language.

V.R.Berghahn's Germany and the Approach of War in 1914. It argues that Germany should bear more responsibility than other nations for WW1. The author mentions his support for Fritz Fischer in the introduction. But it is still a very interesting read.

I recently started to thumb through the Ars Goetia again. I always thought it was interesting, but apparently I've forgotten almost everything in it.

And yes, I know most of the demons are vilified deities and other spirits.

Just started American Gods.  It's off to a good start, but.....dear gods, unbirthing.  WHY?

I like this book. You should let me know when you finish it.

Finished 11.22.63. last night.  Completely unputdownable, but the

An American Dream by Normal Mailer, good really intense 60's american lit-fic in a hemingway character has a psychotic breakdown way, strangulation and sodomy in the first 2 chapters.  Is it a GAN contender? Not sure yet,  but I can see it coming close.
I got middle class problems but the guilt ain't one.
